Five Minute Friday: Favorite Things

This week's Five Minute Friday writing prompt is all about favorite things.


Of course, my husband and children are at the top.  Do they count as things?  For this they do.  When I think of what my life would have been like if they hadn't come along... oh.  Oh no.

Reading to my kids has always been one of my favorite ways to spend time. We have read so many books together, and now as they enter their teens we are still doing it.  Sharing The Odyssey with them right now.  Wow. What a privilege to get to share great literature with my kids.  I'd love a little more time to read on my own, but, maybe that'll come later.

Cooking for my family and others is also a favorite thing.  I love to please people with delicious food.  Most people enjoy food and are easy to please.   Homemade bread is probably at the top of that list.

My firm faith in our sovereign God is one of my favorite things.  I don't  know that I could go on, sometimes, without that.

Fabric, yarn, embroidery thread and cloth... favorite things I don't get to play with much these days.  But my stash will be here when I'm ready.

Books and music.  The tulips that should be blooming soon.  Old friends who stay in touch with me when I seem to want to fall out of touch with them.

Stop.  That was five minutes.

Share yours or read others at The Gypsy Mama

Oh no. My kids will be so mad if they ever read this... I didn't list the dog!  .

Love that your tulips will be blooming soon. We still have a couple weeks for the blooms to really start to pop.

And delicious food? Wonderful.

Haha, yes, you have to list the family dog, too! They definitely hold places in our hearts.

Thanks for such a lovely 5-minute post!
